When asked about the boy band's decision to go head-to-head with the Canadian heartthrob by releasing their album on the same day, Jade, 22, told Australia's 'Kyle & Jackie O Show': ''To be honest, I'm sick of talking about it...just the whole Justin Bieber thing.
''It's really p***ed us off.''
Bandmate Perrie Edwards, 22, then tried to explain that Jade has been asked a lot about Justin, 21, recently, saying: ''It's a bit of a touchy subject,'' before Jesy added: ''We're here to promote our single. We don't really want to talk about Justin Bieber...''
When the confused hosts pushed Jade to explain why she was so reluctant to discuss Justin, she replied: ''We wanna, like, talk about our music, and then we get asked about him all the time. What's the point? What's the point? What's your point?''
She and Jesy, 24, then walked out, with Perrie and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 24, following closely behind them.
But the 'Black Magic' hitmakers returned to the studio minutes later laughing and revealed Kyle was also in on the joke, causing host Jack O to burst into tears.
The presenter replied: ''I'm just relieved. I'm just relieved you're not actually p***ed off. Well played everyone.''
